“Mrs. Shah, your retinal biopsy is complete. By examining a segment of your inner eye under a high-powered microscope, we are able to determine your vision problem…and we never even touched your eye!”
Does this statement sound space-aged…futuristic? Welcome to the new world of high-tech eye care, where path breaking developments in ophthalmic imaging make the intricate and the very complicated inner workings of the retina transparent to an extent inconceivable even a year ago!
Optical Coherence Tomography, or ‘OCT’ in short is a non-invasive technology used for imaging the retina. Quick, painless, safe and informative, this retina scanner is a sample into the future of patient care.
OCT is the first instrument to allow eye doctors to see cross-sectional images of the multi layered sensory tissue (retina). It is a revolutionary development in diagnosis and early detection of eye conditions such as macular holes, macular edema, age-related macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, epiretinal membranes, optic disc abnormalities, and retinal inflammatory diseases. In addition, OCT has the capability of measuring the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in glaucoma and other diseases of the optic nerve.
